Roasted Shrimp & Veggie Salad/Sandwich


     In one of my previous recipes posted here, I had used lot of veggies and half of all the bell peppers were lying in the refrigerator. So I had to use all those veggies and came up with this colorful salad sandwich. I have used very less amount of shrimps(small ones too) compared to veggies and one can easily add twice or thrice the amounts of shrimp. That will make the salad look  more shrimpy! Also one can use different veggies other then those mentioned below.
    I was reading Joanne's post about mexican nacho pizza and I smiled to myself because I had this ready to post draft of a recipe which is the indianzed version of the italian recipe probably comes close to shrimp scampi, without the wine stuff. Its fun how we end up combining the flavors of different regions to suit our  tastes or just out of necessity. 
  Sandhya has passed on some wonderful awards to me which I am going to post them in my next post. Thanks Sandhya for being so encouraging!


Ingredients:-------1)
1 cup shrimps, peeled, deveined
1/2 tbsp oil
2 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp lemon juice
1 pinch black pepper powder
pinch of turmeric
salt to taste
-----------------------2)
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/2 cup green spring onions, chopped
1/2 tbsp oil
1 tsp lemon juice
salt if required


Preparation Method:
1.Clean the shrimps, add salt and keep them aside till we get other things ready. Wash these once again later before adding to the pan.
2. Heat oil in a pan or large skillet. Add the minced garlic and saute for a minute or two. Add crushed red peppers, shrimps(washed/drained), salt, pepper powder,turmeric and saute for about 4 - 7 minutes till the shrimps are fully cooked.
3. Once cooked, add the lemon juice, mix it and remove the shrimps in a bowl.
4. In the same pan, heat oil, add the chopped spring onions, and other veggies and saute. I just sauted them for about 2 - 3 minutes. Add lemon juice and salt(if req) (You can completely skip this step if you would like to keep the veggies raw.)
5. Combine the veggies and the shrimps. Add any seasonings or any other raw veggies if required.
6. Serve it as a side or on a slice of bread to make a open faced salad sandwich.





Preparation Time: 15 - 20 mins
Serves : 2 -3


Note: If required increase the amount of shrimps to 3 cups.

This sandwich looks so delicious! What a great way to use up some leftovers. Sandwiches are really such useful things.

Thanks so much for the mention. One of the best parts of globalization is that us cooks can mix together all types of food principles/customs and come up with some wild and crazy concoctions. That just happen to be delicious as well! I can't wait to see your fusion recipe.
